Rocky Ripple Local Flood Damage Reduction Project
Project Description LD-10-006
In February 2017, the City of Indianapolis announced that it would commit up to $10M over 5 years to local flood damage reduction opportunities, specifically for the protection of the Town of Rocky Ripple and Butler University. This project would be separate from, but in coordination with the Indianapolis North Flood Damage Reduction Project.
Also in February 2017, the City of Indianapolis published a study (included below) prepared by AECOM including an assessment of the range of options related to flood protection for the Town of Rocky Ripple.
In March 2017, a Memorandum of Understanding (included below) was signed by representatives of Indy DPW, the Town of Rocky Ripple and Butler University solidifying a relationship of continued coordination on matters related to water quality, flood protection, erosion control and stormwater management. This document built on an earlier MOA signed in September 2016.
In June 2017, Indy DPW attended a Town of Rocky Ripple public meeting to present preliminary alternatives on what types of flood protection infrastructure may be possible in Rocky Ripple. Engineering renderings of three different project sites were included in the presentation (included below).
